Two members of staff at a Northumberland school are self-isolating after one of them tested positive for coronavirus.

St Benet Biscop Catholic Academy, in Bedlington, has said the infected staff member is well but is spending two weeks at home in quarantine.

The secondary school and sixth form has decided to not send any students home as a result of the confirmed case due to the employee's limited contact with pupils.

However, another member of staff has also been asked to self-isolate for a fortnight following advice from Public Health England.

A letter to parents and carers from headteacher Kevin Shepherd reads: "A member of staff at St Benet Biscop has tested positive for Covid-19 and is therefore self-isolating. The staff member is well and is self-isolating at home.

"I have been in contact with the Public Health England Protection Team to discuss the situation and the potential risk to other students and staff.
